I dream of aloneness and flight

Surprise me...

I dream of

water/ a blue expanse/ the gentle curve of the earth/ a thread of horizon unraveling and infinite.

 

aloneness

is that infinite horizon.

I return to the shore of

a moody lake like an ocean

held by waves steady and unforgiving

if loneliness is drowning

in waves of absence

then alone is swimming back to the self,

to the place

where the lake

 

and

sky blend into one

blue canvas for a

bird to dance

or take

 

flight.
